, this is not the kind of policy you want to have. >> bill clinton tried the approach i am talking about. we created 23 million new job went from ficit to surplus and businesses did very well. so, in some ways we have data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunities for americans and i believe that the economy works best when middle class families are getting tax breaks so they have money in l pockets and those of us who did extraordinarily well because of the magnificent country we are living in. >> so what came out on top after last night's showdown? we'll ask obama delegate brian benjamin and fox news contractor angela mccowan. >> thank you. >> it was a long night. angela who won and why? >> of course romney did. people want substance and solution and not glorified speeches. obama is good at that and he didn't have the teleprompter and he had to defend what he did. and sometimes he was babbling on and you coon understand -- couldn't understand him. romney stayed on point. he has to perform well in the next debate. >> before we get to the next debate. brian who do you think won
, you got to give him credit. >> bill clinton, back in new hampshire today, for the president. meanwhile, mitt romney is narrowing president obama's lead in our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" national poll but the battleground states show he has a difficult path to 270. tonight is his biggest chance to change the momentum of the campaign. what is his game plan? former senator jim talent a romney campaign senior adviser and joins me now in denver. thank you very much. >> thank you, andrea. >> what's the mood inside mitt romney's debate preps? >> oh, i think he's working hard and eager to get out there and do it. i imagine they both are. you prepare and prepare and want to go out and debate and he's going to present the choice before the american people. we can go on the way we are, which is not all that viable or we can have a change of policies and get the economy moving and the deficit reduced. he's been practicing and i'm sure he'll give a good message tonight. >> one of the troubling factors for him throughout the last couple weeks has been the battleground states, likely voter
has been hit with some criticism from some republicans for bringing former president bill clinton into the mix. >> we tried both approaches. the approach governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years, we ended up moving from surplus to deficits, and it all culminated in the financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach i'm talking about. we created 23 million you are in jobs. we went from deficit to surplus, and businesses did very well. martha: don't forget that bill clinton did very well for this president at his convention. but there is karl rove's tweet. the twittersphere was going braisey last night. karl rove said, mr. obama, you're not bill clinton. bill: what did charles think. syndicated column tonight charles krauthammer said there was a clear winner. >> romney won big. he won by two touchdowns. when he steps on the statement gives him stature. when he performs like romney did it changes the mow men tim. bill: krauthammer went on to say one de
to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did better at the next debate. but he did narrow the gap after that first debate. and in a race that's as closes a this, wolf, that could make all the difference. >> very close in florida and virginia, for example and a debate tonight could impact the undecided voters. thanks, gloria. >> uh-huh. >>> you want to talk about the trial of the century, it could have happened if the raid in pakistan had unfolded differently. and a woman who came close to death in portland, maine's harbor can thank her lucky stars for
not look presidential. bill clinton and the president have been able to build up the notion that the economy's better than we thought. 57% of the people think that the economy is getting better. what a dramatic advantage. >> well, i agree with steve. this is mitt's moment. he said months ago to supporters just wait until i get on the stage with the president. just wait until i get to confront him, when i get to explain my version of reality versus his. that's when i'm going to shine. and he has to do it tonight. i agree with you and steve, that he has to be specific. he has to be detailed. partly because people haven't warmed to mitt romney as a person. they don't really trust him yet as a person. all the more important that he set out a specific plan, that makes sense. and that he does it in a humane way. i agree with steve. he has to be -- it's okay if he's serious but he has to make it clear that he wants the job. he wants to be hired by the american people for this job because he wants to help all of the american people. >> here's the problem -- >> and not just the rich
of candidate that does better in that kind of setting? obviously bill clinton comes to mind, he excelled in those debates. >> bill clinton was the master of the town hall format. he made such a great, strong emotional connection with the people asking the questions. just in an absolutely masterful way. i think it favors candidates who have that particular style, but what it does tend to do is discourage a lot of attacks among the candidates on the stage, because it's really hard to do that, it's hard to pull that off when you've got a group of citizens who are there to ask their questions. that's not a very good venue for one candidate to launch an attack against another. >> one of the side notes from last night was governor romney's big bird reference on twitter, it's been talked about today. you say governor romney has a history of making cultural references or pop culture references that don't necessarily help his message. how so? >> well, you know, his pop culture references are just a little off somehow. they're out of date in some ways. during the primary debates, he made a referen
and asleep. who do you want answering the phone. bill: that ad from hillary clinton questioning whether barack obama was ready to handle threats to our country. some are saying benghazi was the 3:00 a.m. call to the white house and barack obama flubbed it miserably. john bolton is here. >> i thought the article was outstanding. anybody who hasn't read it should get a copy of the "wall street journal" and take a look at it. he points to the obama administration ideology being at fault both before the attack and afterwards. that's important to understand. before the attack we clearly didn't suspect it was coming. that's due to an intelligence failure in the sense we looked for information and couldn't get it or if the ideological reason applied they didn't think we needed to ask for the information. al qaeda has been defeated, the war on terror is over, libya is a great success, what could go wrong. obviously it did go wrong. but if the administration from the top down isn't processing reality, this is the kind of tragedy you. bill: you are pinpointing the ideology. so this was their ment
for the democratic convention, i thought that bill clinton made a mesmerizing speech, brilliant both in the rhetoric and the devil of the detail which was undeniable. all the fact checkers attacked him the next day and didn't find anything to attack him over. you then have barack obama the next night and i just didn't think it was nearly as good. i thought that was a bit of a problem even though the clinton effect can help him, the barack obama now has not got that sort of messianic feel he had four years ago. he's got to really raise his game in these debates. >> the great thing about this debate is that it gives him the chance to directly confront mitt romney on what his plans are. mitt romney has been talking generally about how he's going to save the country from the economic mess that the president has led us into. well, the reality is the stock market is booming, we've seen the jobs numbers turn around, the numbers today saying that there's net job creation takes away a big talking point and what is mitt romney going to do specifically, how is his tax plan going to be structured? he hasn't ans
. if you're an attack dog in the debate, you're not going to fill in the mode. >> bill clinton was very likeable and he did that in a debate. that's not mitt romney's strength. why should he try to do it there. >> we have a lot of recent history. sometimes he blows it, bitting $10,000 but a lot of times he's come back and done quite well and stepped up to the occasion, but it's mixed. there's a mixed bag. having said that, it's a completely different arena. the romney campaign knows that, six people on the stage going head to head against the president of the united states. >> i want to read you something that came out of the "national journal" in a thing called defying gravity and it talks about people talking about the economy going bad. they wrote, perhaps the most concerning for romney is obama is winning a healthy share of votes from people who thing he has steered the country off course. one out of four obama supporters in the most recent all state "national journal" heartland monitor poll said that the country was on the wrong track, but they're voting for the president anyway. t
an attack dog and drawing contrast on where you lead the country. bill clinton was likeable and did that in debate. that's not mitt romney's strength, why should he try to do it there. >> we have a lot of recent history with mitt romney at debates. sure, sometimes he blows it, betting $10,000, other times he has really come back and done quite well and he has stepped up to the occasion. but it is mixed. there's a mixed bag. having said that, it is a completely different arena, the romney campaign knows that, debating eight, ten, six on stage and going head to head with the president. >> when you look at the race as a whole, want to read you something from the national journal in a thing called defying gravity. talked about how everybody thinks the economy is bad, the country is going in the wrong direction and they wrote perhaps most concerning for romney, obama is winning a healthy share of votes from people who think he has steered the country off course. one out of four obama supporters in recent all state national journal heartland monitor poll said the country was on the wrong
sounded similar themes that former president bill clinton. he urged a re-examination of temporary foreign aid. >> we can employ people for a time, but can't sustain the economy for a long term. it can't pull the whole cart, because at some point the money runs out. an assistance program that helps unleash free enterprise can create enduring prosperity. >> the calls at the u.n. for outlawing offensive speech produces strong defenses of such speech not only by president obama but also from leaders in the american muslim community. i want to explore that with kim lawton managing editor of the program and the director of the muslim office of the public affairs council. welcome to you both. >> thank you. >> how are you american muslims trying it to persuade other muslims around the world that putting any kind of limit on free speech is dangerous? >> well, i think the first way we're trying to convince fellow m muslims of this is the fact that the idea of free speech is a foundational part of the koran itself. we don't only believe in terms of americans and our belief in the constitution, but t
of this, the way that obama had a bounce coming out of the convention, in charlotte, with bill clinton's famous speech? >> he is looking for a comeback moment. what happens next is going to be important. he's going to be giving a speech on foreign policy. he'll be asked about this in interviews in the coming days. if he can build on this, yes. he will start to close the gap. the romney campaign, just happened just at the right moment for them to capitalize on something. knowing you have five weeks left. there's a couple of turns left. >> the next presidential debate, tuesday, october 16th. >> thanks, rick. >> thank you, guys. >>> again, we extend our thanks to rick klein for that. we'll have much more from the abc political team coming up in a little while on "good morning america." >>> now, turning overseas to breaking news from along the border between turkey and syria. for a second-straight day, turkish artillery has opened fire on syria's targets. that's in retaliation for the syrian shelling of a turkish town yesterday. turkey says the shelling was a warning, not a declaration of
p people, the voters, the main isss the e economy. and d we remember the famous rase from bill clinton -- it isis the ecoconomy, stupid. [lauaughter] so, fofor us, what is important for us is the foreign policy. because the relation between the united states and ththe ararab world, the m main issue, the conflict b between israel and the palestinians.. they wouldovee to know the future of the relation between the united states and the arab world. >> pritchett -- president o oba decided to skip the bilateral meetings that he usually holds. he went on "the view" which is a domemestic talk-ow and campaign stops t did not meet with any foforeign leaders during the general assembly. how was that ken overseas, or at least the lebanese perspective? not t that the hit -- that he did not have time, bause he had time foror "the view." ththe voters are in the united states and the most important in the united states is the economy and to present his project to them and convince him of his points -- convince them of his point of view. buthis is not the case for the arab world and the lebane
denver will decide if he gets another four years. he leaned on bill clinton to make the case this is no way he could have turned this around in four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. the president's mock plan is better in the short run, the long run and a vision where all of us in this together is better than you be often your own. there is no on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good "we are all in this together" strategy. >>reporter: the order of questions is decided. the president gets the first. the problem with the argument that former president clinton made in 2009 president obama said if he didn't turn this around in 3 or 3 1/2 years it would be a one-term proposition. something governor romney will point out. >> the governor aides say -- the obama camp will focus on the economy, taxes and the deficit and will hit romney hard on the idea that bill clinton has been making and made at the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina, it does not add up
bill clinton get away with claiming that the republicans were the ones who deregulated and created the real estate and financial problems when he repealed glass-steagall in 1999. i was the underpinning and away the whole problem. i would say a sushi pointer to because in 10 short years, all the big banks, almost all of them went under. so i just wonder how he can get away with that. that is one of the hallmarks that gave the campaign a bump for bill clinton's speech. is he just not want to admit it? or does he just know that people won't care or following research this? how does you make that statement front of everyone? >> host: maria bartiromo. >> guest: we are in political season. it's political folk all, all politics. and so, number one on the tax code, yes, that is what i just said. i agree with that. what could have seen change over the last three years of her going to complain about people not paying their fair share, change the tax code. it is all legal. if the money manager can use whatever loopholes are available to him or her to lower their tax expense, of course they're
the tax rate. secondly, how can bill clinton get away with clement the republicans were the ones who deregulated and created the financial problems when he repealed glass-steagall in 1999? that was the underpinning of the whole problem. in 10 short years, all the big banks went under, almost all of them. how can he get away with that? that was one of the hallmarks the tv campaign a bump. does he not want to admit it? how does he make that statement? host: maria bartiromo? guest: it is political football. it is all politics. number one on the tax code. we could have seen changes over the last few years. aboutre going to complain people not paying their fair share, change the tax code. it is all legal. they can use loopholes, and so they would do it. anybody would. it is not illegal. it is what they could pressure due because of loopholes are available to them. lower the corporate tax rate and broaden the base. eliminate the loopholes. we have not seen anybody do that. we are hearing a lot of attacks on wealth and business and as people who supposedly are not paying their fair share bu
's headed. >> the bill clinton speech. >> i think, yeah, because certainly the metrics haven't changed much. things haven't gotten a great deal better. but i think bill clinton was able to set a predicate and able to say things that barack obama couldn't say. he inherited a mess and he's making it better. he could say i inherited a mess, he couldn't say i'm headaching it b making it better. >> we're saying how mitt romney could win the election if he does well in the debates and turns things around. but the right track/wrong track numbers, i think you would agree with me, the fact that americans, 57% of americans think the economy is getting better, the right track/wrong track is tightening up. it was in the low 30s, now it's at 40%. you look at states like ohio where right track/wrong track is even more positive than that, that does help the president a great deal. >> it does, and that is a pretty remarkable shift in the numbers, as sam just pointed out. and the key is not how people think the economy is today but where they think it's going. and at 57% think it's headed in the right direc
dramatically since the ryan selection, since medicare, bill clinton's arguments on medicare at the convention, it became central to the discussion, there's been a big shift towards obama in that category. >> this doesn't take medicare off the table. we still have to deal with this. >> you're exactly right. medicare and medicaid are unchecked going to cripple this country. we saw erskine bowles earlier this week in chicago, tom, and i said erskine, isn't it the truth that medicare and medicaid by itself is going to consume every cent that the federal government takes in in 20 years? he said no, that's not true. he said, it's doing it right now. he said, this year alone, in the fiscal year that just ended, every dime the federal government got went to pay medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt. that means everything else that on outside of medicare, medicaid, social security and interest on the debt, we borrowed from china. we borrowed from the saudis, we borrowed. we went deeper in debt. that's unsustainable. and the fact that we're not having that discussion in this camp
sounded like he was tired, and then of course, that debate with bill clinton and george herbert walker bush where he showed, he looked at his watch. so these are moments when people are really assessing your temperament, your body language, your demeanor. so it's a big night for both president obama as well as governor romney. >> did you hear him sigh? were you backstage like stop sighing? >> i heard it the first time. by the third time i pretended not to listen. but more importantly, once they put up that split screen, then you looked at he was rolling his eyes and of course, it was not a pretty moment. but we came back in the second debate. >> that's when the democrats started sighing, too, right after al gore. mitt romney has to demonstrate he's changed. there are a lot of voters in this country who are unsatisfied with barack obama. they think we could do better. they don't know that mitt romney is that change. neither of these guys has told us what the next four years could be like because of the changes they would bring. >> and that's i think another challenge that mitt romney ha
